Looking for signage ideas for your library?
You've come to the right place! I'm always on the lookout for great ideas for signs to make for my library, whether it's to purvey information or to promote books and reading. I especially like signs that are reasonably easy to do, are extremely budget-friendly, and best of all, attract attention in a positive way.
The images on this webpage are gleaned from Flickr.com, where many library and school staff have shared their wealth and wisdom in making signage for those who, like me, always can use a helping hand.

Inquiring Minds Want to Know ...
Take a minute and answer the poll questions if you like. I'm always curious what others do in their libraries. Feel free to expand on your answer as well as tell us what kind of library you work at (i.e. school, academic, public, private, government, special, etc.).
Does your library make it's own signs?

Books Worth Looking At ...
Even in my little junior high school library I feel the need to "step-it-up" and market the library, both to our students and to our administrative staff who control my budget. These are books I've got on order, upon recommendation of staff in other libraries. Maybe they'll be helpful to you too.
